It is always nice to come home to the smell of good food simmering away in my crock pot. This is especially true when tired muscles need fuel! Tonight I made some BBQ flank steak with honey dijon slaw. The flank cooked on low for 11 hours. I made the slaw with radicchio, endive, red shallot, honey dijon dressing, honey and then I topped it with Dutch poppy seeds. Delish!! Protein up!💪

Just…wow. You are a wonderful poet. You know you always speak directly to my heart as if your tongue can taste the shades. ~~~~Felicia

On Sunday I started teaching my son about two grip types while I was training him. I want him to develop solid habits since now. These lessons will stick with him for life. When I noticed he was using a suicide grip (aka false or thumbless grip) on the bench, I stopped him to explain why he shouldn’t. Obviously it doesn’t matter now, but when he gets older and he wants to go heavy, it will matter.
If you use a suicide grip, I would highly recommend that you stop. It is called a suicide grip for a reason. Yes. You could potentially die on the bench or seriously injure yourself if the weighs roll off your palms. Some people swear that the unsafe grip allows them to push more weight. It may put less stress on the shoulders, but it is a dangerous way to lift. This is especially true if you are going heavy.
When we got home my son asked more questions about what I told him. I asked him what he learned and then showed him this YouTube video about why you shouldn’t use the suicide grip. He thought is was scary and understood why I was teaching him how to properly hold the bar. He was on the Smith anyhow, but like I said…good habits since now!

I can’t wait! I just ordered UFC 184!! I’m ready to see Ronda Rousey take out Cat Zingano. On this fight night, New Mexico’s most well-known female fighter will make her UFC debut! Holly Holm is currently undefeated in the Bantamweight Division and she is looking good. I think she is going to take Raquel Pennington down! Even though Rousey has been my fav, if both Rousey and Holm win tonight, they will face off. I will have to cheer for my fellow New Mexican against Rousey soon!! I’m ready to see some arm bars and some blows by the femme fatale battle brigade. 💪💋

Like most of the states in the U.S., New Mexico is being pummeled with snow right now. It was a rather scary drive home from the fitness center last night. It is still snowing a bit here in Santa Fe. This morning I snapped some photos of these beautifully laced Pine trees. It is cold. I love that snow has a way of cloaking things in a mysterious way.
I warmed up the kitchen for breakfast by cooking some good eats. I made a quinoa crusted quiche. It was filled with 10 egg whites, roasted red bell peppers, scallions, cilantro, and jalapeño cheese. The quiche was tasty. It was perfect on a frozen morning. As a treat, I made some blueberry, banana, yogurt and cream cheese filled sweet pockets. Yum!
